It’s a shame that Dominic Calvert-Lewin's impressive assist for Wayne Rooney in the 35th-minute of this early-season tussle between Manchester and Merseyside at the Etihad didn’t end up serving up a precious winner.
Wayne Rooney scores his 200th Premier League goal and celebrates in fine style at The Etihad, where City are down to 10 men.
With four clean sheets in four games, it’s hard to complain. I’ll be interested to see where we stand in a month’s time.
Gylfi Sigurdsson's arrival doesn't necessarily mean an end to Evertonian longing for the No.10 slot to be filled but he potentially has the talent to operate as the all-important central position behind the striker(s).
All-in-all, a good day out and now we can turn our minds to Thursday when off we go again.
With the fixtures upcoming, I was simply relieved to be coming away with the three points, our first opening day win for five years
The Prodigal Son brought all his experience to bear against Stoke, scoring the winner and helping Everton dictate much of the second half to hold on for a 1-0 victory.
A dreadful half turned on its head with a lovely move, great cross and fine header from Wayne Rooney before the break.
With a newly reinforced spine, Everton look as though they could be a stronger outfit than last season, even without the departed Lukaku. Is it enough, however, to crack the top six or four?
Despite the fact that we got a lot of our transfer business done amazingly early, any optimism that was generated is now dissipating and it looks as though we are in danger of leaving things too late... yet again.
Jack Sharp sits in exalted company as one of England’s few dual cricket and football internationals. To Evertonians he is much more than that – an iconic player, captain, FA Cup winner, club director and founder of Liverpool’s best known sports outfitters.
The organization was formed on a train journey from Birmingham to Cambridge – after a football tournament. The name NSF was agreed – slight reference to NLF – National Liberation Front – from the Vietnam War. I don’t recall that we ever added the CU in our day. Meetings were then held in Trinity College bar and were surprisingly formal – minutes from the previous meeting, motions passed etc.
On the cusp of a major leap forward for Everton, Ross Barkley, the diamond of the club’s academy, has decided to jump ship. It’s a sad day for many Evertonians; an indifferent day for many others.
Everton are looking pretty strong
Koeman’s project is not clearly defined. We assume it’s about winning something, but really it is just another way of saying we will pay him a lot of money to achieve a goal, and that goal appears to be Champions League football.
Luckily we didn't book our trip to the Netherlands for Everton's game-that-wasn't against Groningen and so, when the game against Genk was announced, Gaz and I were able to book some flights to Brussels Charleroi.
Often we talk about what we need and first IXs, but football is a squad game nowadays, and hopefully this season will see us challenge for the top-4, while also making serious tilts to the 3 cup competitions. How is our squad prepared for this challenge?
It is looking increasingly like a done deal, but I really do not want him back. Here are not one but 15 reasons why we should not even be considering his return.
Another Scottish import to Goodison Park, the forward would go on to make FA Cup history.
